How would you describe your music?
I’ve always said that Saint Tragedy’s music has a mixture between modern and classic rock
Tell us about the history of the project?
This thing all started roughly 10 years ago when I, myself was looking to start a band. Now it took me a solid few years to really develop the arsenal that I have now, but in the mix of that I kept writing my music and bringing out my passion for what I love.
What are your influences/musical heroes?
My influences have always been singers with a lot of soul, the ones that make you really feel what they’re saying.
Brent Smith of Shinedown is my top one, and I’ve recently gotten more into Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge as well.
What inspires you?
What inspires me is life itself, staying positive and motivated and keeping a strong mind. Music is the number one thing that keeps all that embedded in me. Music makes me who I am today.
Do you write on the road? or do you prefer to write in the studio?
It’s not so much either or for us right now, we’re not fully on the road yet so I’ve been writing a lot from home or we’ve been writing at rehearsals, but when we are on the road I’m sure they’ll be some tasty jams developed then too.
What is the favourite song to perform live?
I’d have to say ‘No More Religion’ or ‘Move On’, those are two songs off our EP that really have a strong meaning that drive to the crowd.
What would be your dream tour to be a part of?
It’d probably be a Shinedown/Alter Bridge tour
What are your current thoughts on the music industry?
In my opinion, I’d think we as musicians would gain a lot more if people would actually be willing to fill these venues. It’s not like how it use to be sadly, you have to be an above all national act to really make ticket sales nowadays, and in the end it really comes down to it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.
What is the funniest/weirdest experience you have had on tour?
Well I know for me it’ll date back to a few years ago a show we played in Ringle, WII walked into the bathroom after our show and there was this drunk gentleman standing in there with a sharpie asking me to sign his arm haha. Now walking out of there and telling the other guys about it led to them thinking I signed the mans “third” leg haha. Needless to say really weird night, oh and we got pulled over after leaving there because our apparent trailer lights that we thought were working were not to which our drummer following behind us said they were. In the end it was nice to know the officer was a musician himself and we laughed our way back home.
What are your future plans?
Our plans as of right now is to finish out 2018 strong, and come out swinging next year with new material and a potential tour.
